    RAYS 19" RIM REPAIRS
    Hi guys,
    Having recently purchased my 2011 370Z in immaculate condition, except gutter rash on 2 wheels, I researched a business to repair same online. Should you be in the Newcastle area I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rim Repair Newcastle. The business operator Lee is originally from Texas USA, and has been doing this work for 20 years in total, and his professionalism and quality of work bears this out. I was more than impressed by his work, completing the repairs with tyres on rims, masking everything meticulously before the painting process, completing same with a clear over the top.

    I'm in that boat right now. How did you go??
  4. adelaidezedman added a post in a topic Intelligent Key System steering wheel lock failure   

    I had same today. I had it happen once before and found the hammer hit on the metal box got me going... I figured that was the last of it. I was not aware of the fuse pull once you get started. It happened again today and RAA towed to Main North Nissan. I now know about the fuse pull but it's too late. Quoted $2300 to fix. If Nissan won't cover it, I will pull it out and try and fix myself...

    Hi mate,
     
    Welcome. I run a very stock 2009 370z and have had zero problems. I think it depends on how you drive it and what you do to it. The only thing I can warn you about is the very limited rear 180deg view, e.g., behind your ears back. That said, its a sports car so kinda to be expected and you will learn to cope.
    Cheers.

    Yea I saw that cougar motors offer for supply and install of the AAM TT kit. Seems ludacris to me, since the kit cost me around 12K-16K alone for labor because of all the modification and fab work needed.
     
    But anyways if thats what they offer as a business thats what they have to uphold. Just wish I saw it before I did my build.

    VIC Japanese Style Plates
    I was wondering if the Victoria Japanese style plates fit the rear stock bumper slot of a 350z? I've done the measurements but it's hard to tell if it will just fit or be slightly too big.
    Does anybody have them on their 350Z?

    Engine overheating
    Hi all,
    Just looking for a bit of advice before I book the car in to an Auto Electrician. It's an 06 track.
    When parked with the engine running it overheats, ran it into the garage and gave it the once over. Not losing any coolant, pump and thermostat seem to be working but the fans don't always come on. Anyone else had similar issues?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have just bought the Pilot sport 4, did not really know about the 4s. Anyway they still get a good review so I will see how I go 
  12. shadow85 added a post in a topic Installer /tuner Perth WA   

    Mate, listen to these wise words. If you wan't best value for an installed TT kit and tuned, send your car to RevZone in Melbourne or CRD in Sydney and they both supply, fit and tune TT kits for around the $16K. From what I hear they install a custom GTM TT kit, which is good quality but there are better ones available if you want to import yourself, like Fast Intentions or AAM TT kits.
     
    I went the hard route, imported myself the AAM TT kit and lots of other extra pieces for support and had it installed by a shop here in SA. Well guess what, I ended up being a guinea pig and in the end I have spent over $17K just in labour to have the shop install everything and they still havent fixed the boost controller. So basically I have spent over $15K in importing all the parts myself, and then over $17K in labor for them to figure it all out, yes I spent over $30K trying to get this up and running. What I should have done, is gone to RevZone or CRD who have done it multiple times and do it for $16K supply, fit and install. Yes I would have saved over $15K which I could have just used for an engine build! I would hv rather just spent the $500 in transporting my car to them then being naive and having everything imported myself and installed by a workshop who doesn't know VQ37s.
     
    FML, I learned the hard way but its too late for me now. I am just passing the words onto anyone else looking for forced Induction on their VQ37. Australia is just too expensive for this platform that's why there is barely any around!

    Hi Mate, this forum has gone quite in recent times, a lot of discussion on the facebook site. It would be good if more posted in the topics/folders here, much easer to troll through etc. The site recently appeared to be taken over by spam posts but hopefully that has been resolved-that certainly didn't help people posting.
    The US 370 forum is very good for the info you are after. Hope you end up buying one.
    I love my Roadster but have only added a CBE. 
    Cheers,
    Rodd

    New Kids on the Block is my favourite pop-band of 90s. NKOTB had so many hits! The ones I remember are 'Tonight', 'Baby, I Believe In You' and their hit 'Step By Step'. These are real songs, not fake ones like today! And it is sooo good they have a tour in 2019! So I'm going to attend their concert this year. The full list is here: New Kids on the Block tour Pittsburgh. Click on it and maybe we can even visit one of the concerts together!
  17. ja9 added a post in a topic Which clutch kit to get?   

    Mate,
    Nothing wrong with your choice of clutch but since you asked; I'm more than happy with my Extreme Clutch. Been in the car for more than 2 years, no noise, no issues. In fact I had an issue some time ago which needed to get to the clutch (nothing to do with Extreme clutch). Clutch plate looked like brand new. Best part was the price. Shop around as there was at least a $200 difference from place to place for the same clutch. Bursons was were I picked it up from in Sydney.

    Hi Peter and Rodd,
    Nice to meet you guys here. Yeah, I noticed there do not seem to be much happening here. We should seriously get together and go for a drive, all 3 red Z's on the road. Should be totally awesome.
    Thanks mate. Shame most of you are in NSW. I was hoping to meet a few other Z owners form Melbourne for weekend photo shoots

    Hello!
    Hi everyone!
    I currently own a 2015 Volkswagen Golf R and love it, fast and fun to drive. (please don't leave yet- LOL) Lately, I have been getting bored of it, and while at first I loved how subtle and sleeper like it looked- It just does not do it for me anymore, on top of some silly niggly issues that it has.
    I sat in a Nismo 370z at a showroom last weekend, and was instantly drawn to the car, It has almost everything the R does (Only 2 powered wheels, not 4 haha)- But it does look amazing- like a fast/fun car should.
    I have a couple of questions that I hope I can get answered- Ill admit that I only did a very quick search..
    What sort of problems am I to expect mechanically/electronically? (My golf has had common issues like consuming oil and/or coolant- apparently common for that motor)
    Best/Most common performance modifications? (I have seen limited things about Twin turbo kits and one intriguing turbo mounted with the exhaust- but I struggle to find anything from the slightly smaller mods-- Assume its probably headers, intake, catback, tune but Id still love to know)(Especaially anything helpful for the Australian market- not the US market)
    Anything else that I should look out for? (ex. A friend of a friend of mine lost his warranty after using his launch control just once in his brand new Focus RS as that apparently is a thing in their t's and c's. (I dont know if I believe it but somehow also not surprised if it is true)
     
    Thanks in advance everyone- Not sure how active internet forums are these days- been some time since I have been a part of an active car community online now..

    Agree with your comments re Michelin Pilot Super Sports.  I'ver been using them for a few years now and find the improved quietness, ride, mileage and grip much superior to the standard Bridgestones.  
    Have just this week replaced my Super Sports with the Pilot Sport 4S (not to be confused with the cheaper PS4), which is the newer, upgraded tyre.  Will be curious to see how they go.  Initial impressions (after 500 kms) seem very positive.
